pollForChangesFromSyncedCaller

Recommended Posts

Any good reason why the system.log should be filling up with entries every 3 seconds about

pollForChangesFromSyncedCaller

Is there any way to silence it?

macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra

Retrospect Client 15.6.0.(125)

I missed the word "Client" in your first post, so I looked at my Retrospect server and did not find any such entries.

Now I looked on my client and I indeed got the same log messages as you. I have never been bothered by them (obviously as I have never noticed them before :) ).

I haven't found a way to turn them off. If it really is a problem (and not just a minor cosmetic flaw), I suggest you contact Retrospect Support.

My retrospect clients are flawed by this annoying behaviour too. 
It isn't a cosmetic flaw. Retrospect is spamming my clients system logs making logs difficult to manage.
